How do I change the Network Neighborhood icon?

A. A. This can be changed using Themes for NT or the Plus Tab of Display settings, however it can also be changed using the registry editor

  1. Start the registry editor (regedit.exe)
  2. Move to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\\{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D\}\DefaultIcon
  3. Double click on (Default)
  4. Set to the icon required, e.g. "d:\Prog Files\Plus\Themes\John.ico,0". The 0 shows it is icon 1 in the file
  5. Exit the registry editor
